Home is Where the Heart is

Home is Where the Heart is

For months now, all members of the Oxbow family have been anticipating the move to our brand new home, and we’re excited to say the time has finally come!

Our new facility brings all of our operations under one roof -- from our corporate offices, to our product prep and production areas, to our warehouse. It is the perfect integration of industry-leading technology and systems and special touches that remind us of our family farm-roots.

For us, producing premium nutrition and care products for small pets is not just a job; it’s our calling. Many of our employees have worked with us for years, and the entire Oxbow family played an invaluable role in creating a new home that will enable us to uphold our hallmark quality standards as we continue to grow and innovate in the name of pet health.

We could not be more excited about this new phase in Oxbow’s history, and we look forward to you joining us on the next step in our journey!

Oxbow Animal Health Announces 2017 Rescue Grant Recipients

Oxbow Animal Health has announced the recipients of its 2017 Oxbow Animal Health Rescue Grants.  The nine recipient organizations will receive funding and donations totaling over $20,000 for a variety of projects and programs that benefit the welfare of small animals throughout North America. Grant winners are chosen for excellence in the areas of educational outreach, public awareness, and project impact.

The 2017 Oxbow Rescue Grant Recipients are:

Bunny Bunch - Montclair, CA
Lake Erie Nature and Science Center - Bay Village, OH
Tucson Wildlife Center - Tucson, AZ
Bruno’s Pro-Bone-O Pet Pantry - Bartlet, IL
Remembering Ruby Rabbit Rescue - Shelley, ID
Everything Animals Resource and Activity Center - Bullville, NY
Wildlife Care Association and Education Center - McClellan, CA
Elmbrook Humane Society - Brookfield, WI
Colorado House Rabbit Society - Broomfield, CO 

“On behalf of the entire Oxbow family, it is my honor to congratulate the 2017 Oxbow Rescue Grant recipients,” said John Miller, President and Founder of Oxbow Animal Health.  “Small animal rescue organizations and wildlife rehabilitators are the guardian angels of animals in need - giving endlessly, even when resources are scarce.  Oxbow is humbled to support the work of these groups, and we’re delighted to know that this year’s grants will support so many animals in need.”

“We are incredibly grateful to Oxbow Animal Health for selecting our organization as one of the recipients of their 2017 Oxbow Rescue Grant program,” said Heather Gehrke, Executive Director of the Elmbrook Humane Society in Brookfield, Wisconsin.  “The grant will help change the lives of rabbits in our care by replacing our current outdated housing with brand new comfortable condos.  The housing will meet industry recommendations while providing them increased room to move and options for enrichment.”

“The Colorado House Rabbit Society was elated to learn that we had been awarded a 2017 Oxbow Rescue Grant.  It simply took my breath away,”said Nancy LaRoche, Manager of the Colorado HRS.  “We are so very grateful that we now have funds to resurface the floor of our “Bunny Barn” and to repair crates and pens or get new ones.  Our rabbits—and our volunteers—will enjoy the improved and safer housing!”

“For a small organization such as Everything Animals, this grant makes a huge difference in our ability to achieve our rescue and humane education goals,” said Jan Berlin, Director of Everything Animals Resource & Activity Center, Inc. in Bullville, New York.  “We will be using the generous donation of Oxbow products to properly feed and entertain our rescues.  The financial contribution will go toward our ever-present veterinary bills, the purchase of a new and improved steam cleaner for our animal enclosures, and the purchase of Ecos paint (made specifically for rooms where animals are present) for the walls of our animal room.”

“Bruno’s Pro-Bone-O Pet Pantry is a specialty organization,” said Gerri Vaughn, the group’s Founder.  “There are very,very, few organizations who provide free pet food when families, the elderly, military veterans and the disabled find themselves in crisis and not able to keep themselves and their pets fed.  Our goal is to keep as many family pets at home and OUT of shelters.  This generous grant will go towards two items. The first will be pet food, of course. With this donation we will be able to feed many more family pets and keep them in their forever homes. Less stress on everyone one. The second item is our current project of becoming a traveling pantry! We call it Bruno’s Chow Wagon. We will be able to be mobile and feed many, many who cannot make it to our land based pantry.”

Information regarding the 2018 Oxbow Rescue Grants will be available at www.oxbowanimalhealth.com.  Applications for the 2018 Oxbow Rescue Grants will be accepted from June 1, 2018, through August 31, 2018, for small animal rescue and rehabilitation projects throughout the United States and Canada.
